    About "Eva Schloss"

    1. Eva Schloss

      From People Associated with Anne Frank Eva Geiringer shared a remarkably similar history with Anne The Geiringers lived on the opposite side of Merwedeplein, the square where the Frank s apartment was located, and Eva and Anne were almost exactly the same age Eva was also a close friend of Sanne Ledermann, and she knew both Anne and Margot Eva described herself as an out and out tomboy, and hence she was in awe of Anne s fashion sense and worldliness, but she was somewhat puzzled by Anne s fascination with boys I had a brother, so boys were no big thing to me Eva wrote But Anne had introduced Eva to her father when the Geiringers first came to Amsterdam so you can speak German with someone as Anne had said, and Eva never forgot Otto s kindness to her Though they did know each other on a first name basis, Eva and Anne were not especially close, as they had different groups of friends aside from their mutual close friendship with Sanne Ledermann Eva s brother Heinz was called up for deportation to labor camp on the same day as Margot Frank, and the Geiringers went into hiding at the same time the Franks did, though the Geiringer family split into two groups to do so Eva and her mother, and Heinz and his father Though hiding in two separate locations, all four of the Geiringers were betrayed on the same day, about three months before the Frank family Eva survived Auschwitz, and when the Russians liberated Birkenau, the women s sector of the camp, she walked the mile and a half distance to the men s camp to look for her father and brother, finding out much later that they had not survived the prisoner march out of Auschwitz But when she entered the sick barracks of the men s camp, she recognized Otto Frank, and had a warm reunion with him Eight years later, Otto married Eva s widowed mother Fritzi, thereby making Eva a stepsister of Anne Eva later wrote her autobiography Eva s Story A Survivor s Tale by the Stepsister of Anne Frank, 1 which served as the inspiration for the development of a popular multimedia stage presentation about the Holocaust called And Then They Came for Me.

    1. Although this is the first I've read of Eva Schloss's holocaust survival tales, I had the feeling it was a bit truncated. I did not realize it was her story retold for a younger audience. Even so, when her family is taken to prison and then the death camp, the story becomes more PG-13.If you're looking for a novella length account, have an interest in Austria, Holland, Auschwitz, holocaust survivors and such, this is an excellent book to begin.


    2. It all starts with a young Jewish girl named Eva Schloss. She was a timid girl who loved to draw and enjoyed having the company of her large family. Eva grew up in a normal family, with normal friends, and in the normal city of Vienna. Her life was going great, until 1940 when the Nazis invaded Austria. Everything she knew was about to change in an instant. Eva and her brother, Heinz, and her parents had to flee to Belgium immediately. Soon after, they fled to Amsterdam where they could receive [...]


    3. This is the true story of Eva Schloss' life before, during, and after the Holocaust. She concentrates a lot on her relationship with her brother Heinz who did not survive. Since I heard Mrs. Schloss speak a week ago, this book did not hold any surprises, but in particular I think it would make good reading for middle schoolers.


    4. Eva Schloss is an Auschwitz survivor and Otto Frank’s stepdaughter. This is more or less her autobiography, written with the assistance of a friend.I find it so difficult to say anything critical about these autobiographical Holocaust children’s books--I mean, critical from a *literary* point of view. So I guess I won’t. Like many similar life stories, part of what makes the horror of the concentration camps so palpable is the sheer *ordinariness* of any child’s life before the war. The [...]


    5. Eva Schloss writes a moving memoir about her experience as a holocaust survivor. She wrote this book especially for children. Eva had a happy life growing up in Vienna. Her life changed dramatically once the Nazi's occupied her country. She speaks about her experiences hiding from the Nazis and later being captured and sent to Auschwitz. It's a moving story told through the eyes of a child. Eva talks about being depressed and unhappy after the war and the need to move on and build a loving happy [...]


    6. This true story of a family's experience with the Holocaust is both heart wrenching and inspirational. Beginning during a happy time when life was good, the author takes us step-by-step through the nightmares and atrocities experienced at the hands of the Nazi's. It truly makes you wonder how human beings can treat each other like that. I still can't wrap my head around that and never will. However, Eva Schloss and her mother survived with determination and perseverance and through the remembran [...]


    7. Its an easy read, but emotionally very hard. Evi had a lot of courage and strength to keep going, she was also incredibly lucky to have been mistaken as an adult as that made all the difference to how she even got a chance to survive the holocaust. Its a very sad story. An its a true story.


    8. A great Holocaust tale for young adults. As sad as Eva story was, it was also inspiring too. Especially the promise that her father made to her before they had to go in hiding.


    9. A young Jewish woman details her WWII experiences.Given the powerful details that are given in this book I found it oddly flat / un-engaging.


    10. Not the most literary writing, and definitely aimed at children, but otherwise was an interesting and quick read. It was very interesting to read about her connection to Anne Frank.



    11. A moving true account from the step-daughter of Otto Frank (Anne Frank's father.) Holocaust survivor's story suitable for middle school. Had the pleasure to meet Eva. A very spunky woman!






    12. I gave this a 3 star rating because of the book it's self. I love the story behind it and it was really sad and i learned alot but it was such a slow read it took me forever to read.


    13. Really good book, worth reading and page-turning indeed! Never read from Eva Schloss before and this was a great introduction to her books
